I am editing a single stereo track. I just select portions of the audio to delete, fade in/out, amplify, etc. and I really only need a line to go all the way across the 2 channel waveforms when I am selecting a block of audio to process, 1 line at the start of the selection and 1 line at the end.
If you only have a single stereo track, the lines are the left and right boundary of the selection. Why do you need lines going down below the track?
RodCrockford wrote:Starting the selection is not too bad, as the current position in the audio is marked by a line that does go all the way across the waveform.
Because you didn't include images in your RTF file, we don't know what you are trying to do. "Across" means left to right, but that is not what you said in your file. Can you resubmit your file, or just attach images in PNG or JPG?

In other words, the vertical line of the editing cursor changes to become the edge of the selection. That is intended, not a bug.

Why? When you click and drag from the editing cursor to create a selection, the starting or ending point of the selection does not change.
Is the problem that you are working with tones or other block-like waveforms, so that the edge of the selection is visually behind the waveform? That is a minor problem - I have always thought the selection should be laid on top of the waveform.
